The 11th meeting of the OAI community for developments in Scholarly Communication is taking place at the University of Geneva, 19-21 June 2019. The theme of the 2019 Workshop is: Open Science – its impact and potential as a driver for radical change
OAI meetings are one of the Open Access/Open Science meetings in Europe in the year in which they are held. Their aim is to engage all stakeholders in the scholarly communications chain in debate and discussion around current developments and to identify new development paths and ways to collaborate and share.
